    Back to crunching again guys. Not doing full-time just a few hours during the evening. Every little bit counts Arjai. Welcome to the team! :)

    Looks like my gremlins are back. SR-2 started rebooting randomly and is no longer POSTing. The 3930K also started hanging and rebooting, had to bring it back to stock for now.

    By contrast, the 2600K I bought back in january 2011 is still going strong without a single reboot or BSOD. Silicone lottery anyone?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    Welcome to the team. And as was said already every little bit helps. I started where your at. A couple old computers crunching about 12 to 15 hrs a day. I built a few other crunchers over the last 2 or 3 months out of used parts I bought from people on this site. (thanks to all that have sold or givin me parts to build the crunchers.) You will get there. :toast:

    Thanks everyone!

    Well, I started to put this P4 together and found out that my C drive, which is now a slave to my E drive, needs to be in my computer for it to boot.

    So, the P4 is still without a hard drive, and may be for a bit. Also, that MoBo didn't accept my 184 pin DIMM! So, it's stuck with 256Mb, until I find some money laying around this project is on hold and it's just me and my Duron Crunching when I'm not on it.

    I have a XP 2600 on it's way to me in the mail. At least then I'll have a better CPU to help out!

    This Duron is only stable up to about 1.48 GHz, then it makes the screen blank or won't boot. I've run it a few times up in the 1.6 range but not for long.

    So, for now, WCG gets a OCed Durton, at 1.4GHz, and up to 10gigs of my harddrive, for between 8 and 11 hours a day. I joined on the 17th, of April, and still haven't accrued a single point! But, I'm trying!! :banghead:

    It might only pump out 800 to 1200 ppd but as everyone else said it all adds up. My buddy left me his old HP Pavillion with a Athlon x2 and as soon as I get a spinner to replace his failed HDD I will get it up and crunching 24/7

    Cheers :toast: And welcome too!

    I was wondering when you'd start crunching again! WB my friend! :rockout:

    431 watt??? You sure it's not 429 or 432 watts? Maybe 430?

    Excerpt from the review....

    We've looked at the 350Watt version previously and were very satisfied with it. The 431Watt powerhouse surprised us with a few extra features even!

    Any little bit counts buddy. That's a start and you'll get motivated and find ways as you go. Welcome aboard and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. :toast:

    :rockout: :)

    Keep us posted, man you don't get one rig giving you trouble at once, when one is acting up, all of them do!
